Thursday Treats – Paper to Digi 3/3

Okay, show of hands… who used to be a paper scrapbooker prior to digi?

Yep, that’s what I thought! Most of us used to scrap with paper before we discovered digital scrapbooking. Some of us still scrap paper pages or combine the two with hybrid pages or mini-albums or planners, etc. There is something about finding the most gorgeous paper, perfect in every way… and then hoarding it because you’re afraid to mess it up!?! No laughing, I think we’ve all actually done that.

One of this month’s Bingo Challenges is a paper to digi scraplift. This can be as simple or as challenging as you choose to make it. You need only find inspiration in the paper page, not copy it completely. Some paper techniques don’t lend themselves easily to digi. But that can be the challenging part, finding a way to do THAT ONE THING digitally through trial and error.

Just in case you haven’t tried paper to digi, we thought it might be helpful to provide a little inspiration from the SugarBabes to make it easier.

First up, Trish:

Trish says: So, paper to digi scraplifts are my love. I built a lot of my style based on studying paper pages and paper process videos so this was an easy one for me. I have an entire Pinterest board full of paper scrapbook inspiration if anyone needs to find paper inspiration.

Trish chose a layout from the gallery at Cocoa Daisy to lift:

Next up is Jacinda:

Jacinda says, “It’s been a while since I did a paper lift. I loved looking through pinterest for inspiration, and this image caught my eye immediately. The vibrant photos with a simple design and background. It’s exactly how I used to scrap when I did paper scrapping.”

Her inspiration, a layout from Pam Baldwin:

Next is Jenn:

Jenn says: As a former paper scrapbooker, I love looking at paper pages. It’s great to see how digital and paper styles influence each other. I chose to lift a page by VBeata.

  • Thanks for the inspiration, ladies. All your pages are very beautiful!
    As someone who has never done “paper” scrapbooking (cardmaking doesn’t count, I guess?) I was wondering if this should be the way to go for the challenge. I’m glad I was right 🙂 I was browsing pinterest for inspiration the other day and made a little board with beautiful paper pages
    I really like some of the paper techniques and I guess I’ll try to lift a thing or two 🙂

  • These pages are all beautiful and what a fun idea to showcase a paper page and then a digital imitation. All of the designs offer great inspiration. Thanks!
